I was looking for a fish recipe to go over polenta and this one worked nicely . I used fresh chopped Roma tomatoes. I did find that 325 degree oven was too low and slow I ended up broiling it for a few minutes after baking for 20 minutes . I found it didn't need any additional salt with the olives and anchovies .
This was great. Only modifications I made were using fresh tomatoes (3 medium), parsley instead of mint, a glug of white wine instead of vinegar, and anchovy paste (about 1T). I found that I had to crank up the oven temp too to about 375-400 to get the fish done and sauce bubbling. Took a few more minutes, but if I had started on higher temp, I think it would have gone faster. Still a winner!
Used sauce just with pasta. Doubled garlic and added a splash of red wine instead of vinegar. Cooked about 20 minutes so sauce thickens. Added cooked pasta to pan with sauce and added grated italian cheese - very good quick meal.
Excellent recipe. Red snapper really shines here.
